Hugh and Louise Inman markers, Georgia

Atlanta, Fulton County
Louise Inman, 1883-1888
Hugh Inman, 1879-1881

Louise and Hugh Inman were born to Hugh and Josephine Inman. The Inman family was a prominent Atlanta family. Being a family of means, they were able to employ someone to create death masks of their children.

Death masks are masks made of wax or plaster created after death as a permanent portrait of the deceased. Death masks appear different than other sculptural elements on cemetery markers because the features appear unique from mass-produced markers.
